Trust us, we know how easy it is to kick back and stay home on a Winter weekend. After all that’s where the Netflix is! There’s so much happening in Perth this weekend though. So much in fact that we thought we’d share with you five of the most exciting events to check out instead of staying at home…
Whether you’re just starting your career or considering a complete career change, you need to check out WA’s largest careers and employment event. Running from Friday through to Sunday, there’s over 80 organisations and employers on site with career opportunities for all ages. You can learn how to write a winning resume, experience daily career seminars, enjoy interactive displays – and hey, even come and say hello to your favourite radio people. That’s right, Boom’s broadcasting live all weekend! Find out more here: http://skillswestexpo.com.au
- Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood
Love him or hate him, few directors still get people talking like Quentin Tarantino. The man who brought us classics like Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Inglourious Basterds has finally released his 9th film. Starring an all-star cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Margot Robbie – Once Upon A Time In… Hollywood takes us back to the iconic city’s cinematic glory days of 1969. You’re in for quite a ride, and a long one too at nearly three hours! This one’s screening pretty much everywhere so check the listing of your favourite cinema.
- Ross Noble
No two Ross Noble shows are alike. Allegedly he only writes down four words before hitting the stage… then anything can happen and quite often does. The Englishman is an absolute whirlwind of surreal and on-the-fly comedy. If you’ve never seen him before, or if you’ve seen him more times than you can count, you’re always guaranteed one very funny evening. Ross is performing all over W.A. this month, including two more shows at the Astor Theatre on Friday and Saturday. Tickets available through Ticketek.
- Harry Potter Quiz Night
Think you know your Hedwig from your Hogwarts? Then head down to the Leederville Function Centre on Saturday night for the Harry Potter Quiz Night! Dress up as your favourite wizard, try Wizard bingo, and prove you’re the biggest Potter fan of all! Tickets are only $22, or $220 for a table of ten. This is an 18+ event but underage wizards are allowed with a parent or guardian. Full details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1773252709487876/
